Small Fry Films: Brooke & London

After a pretty heavy few days, (we can’t thank you all enough for your loving words and support!) we knew exactly what we’d need: a shot of sunshine. There is no one better for the job than our friend Brooke White. Singer, songwriter (Christmas album out now!), former American Idol contestant, editor of the darling site The Girls With Glasses and mama to the chubbiest, sweetest baby girl, London. Within seconds of Jenner’s rolling film, we were all behind the scenes in tears. Brooke has the uncanny ability to dance through life with contagious effervescence. She is the first to admit her faults, shortcomings, and defeats, but she does it all with a beaming smile. Brooke does not have a self-conscious bone in her body, and it was so refreshing to watch her mother London with such joy and free-spiritedness. This is simply her morning routine, and she infuses every step of the way with great love. Their lives are filled with music and dancing and when the camera stopped rolling we simply didn’t want to leave, you’ll see why:

Film by Jenner Brown of Lumineux Films.

(This film’s track “Little Bird” was recorded live by Brooke White, purchase the studio version here.)

We talked with Brooke about how she balances motherhood with such a demanding career, and she simply said, it is family and her principles first, and career second. She has turned down many an opportunity if it didn’t fit with those priorities, while in the same sentence exclaimed that her successes wouldn’t be as sweet without her family by her side. Brooke White you inspire us all.

Here’s where you can find more of Brooke:

First and foremost, the very best of Brooke can be found on her new Christmas album White Christmas on iTunes. $8 for 12 beautiful songs with that beautiful raspy voice? We’ve been playing our copies around the clock. Run don’t walk!

Still need more Brooke? We don’t blame you:
